    As of today, I have been brewing beer for one full year. I have brewed 23 batches, The first one was partial mash, the next 22 were all grain. 17 went into Bottles, six into kegs. I have been lucky enough to not get infected, and every batch has been a highly successful very drinkable beer I brewed a nice bitter today.
    Would just like to say thank you to all of you for helping me along the way :)

    Congrats on the anniversary. I just entered the hobby in February, and have just recently bottled my 6th batch. I must say that this a great community, everyone is very helpful, and never gives you the "rookie treatment". At the same time some fun is had.

    Wouldn’t work in my house. I haven’t bought any beer to bring home since I started brewing again 4 years ago. And I make sure I don’t run out!

    Congrats Vallka, I'm in roughly the same boat, it was about a year ago I did my first all grain batch. I still have a long way to go but it's less scary every time.

    I wish I had this Internet at that stage of my brewing I had to start from scratch and learn everything from my mistakes, 35 years of brewing and over 250 batches, many were 55 pounds of grain and trust me I've a few big mistakes in my day, good luck guys

    I did 3 or so batches 25 odd years ago but they didn't turn out too well,
    It was so much harder back then, have a great appreciation for all you guys that stuck with it back in the prehistoric age, you made it so much easier for us now:D
